    How I spent my day wearing a funny hat! (Graduation!)

    Well, I'm back from Commencement! Things went very well. I didn't trip or anything!

    So, here are a very few of the pics.

    Me and a classmate beforehand, getting ready for the lineup




    Getting my degree!



    and after



    with the wife



    With my Aunt

    Many congratulations Tom… seeing those pictures certainly brought back memories of when I got my Associates Degree from good ole Ivy Tech. (2002)

    Did they have the ceremony in Lafayette, or did you have to go to Muncie for the ceremony?

    Maybe it just depends on the region where one takes their classes, but we had our ceremony in the auditorium, on the campus of Ball State University in Muncie IN. Even though most of my classes where in Marion, Fort Wayne, and just a few in Muncie.

    Anyway congratulations again…

    Elliot Hall at Purdue U is where my commencement was.

    That's the Clock Tower in the backdrop in the after pics.

    I'd respond, but it would be mostly asterisks.
